Prepare well beforehand

One of the most important things that you can do to ensure have a fantastic trip when you arrive in Egypt is to prepare well beforehand. What this means is that you need to know exactly which documents you will need, such as a VISA to enter Cairo, as well as what is going on with the medical side of things.

This aspect of preparation usually includes getting the family kitted out with anti-malaria tablets, and other vaccinations before you go. Its also always a great idea to pack some re-hydration powders and upset stomach mediation as foreigners in Egypt quite often suffer from stomach issues.

Also before you book your break, it’s a great idea to check out what the government is saying about travelling safely in the area, something that families with young kids will be particularly interested in.


Be sun savvy

Next, to ensure that you have the best time possible on your Egyptian adventure with the family you must be sure that everyone in your party is sun savvy. What this means is that you not only explain to the kids that are old enough to understand about how not to be on the sun too long, but you also stock up on the right clothing, hats, and sunscreen before you go.

In particular hats with long backs that cover the neck, and swimming bodysuits are a good best for the little ones. This is because such items as these ensure they are as protected from the harsh rays of the sun as much as possible.


Book the right accommodation

It is also prudent, when holidaying in Egypt with the kids, to look carefully into your accommodation before you book it too. The reason for this is because you will want to make sure that you have air-conditioning included in the price as well as a range of dining options, so the little ones don’t get bored.

Luckily, there are some genuinely magnificent hotels in Egypt ranging from the stunning 5-star venues like The Nile Ritz-Carlton in Cairo to the all-inclusive resorts in Hurghada and Sharm El Shake. Although its tough to get a flight from a UK airport to Sharm at the current time.


Plan your time


Be warned though that even though such places are great for some #Insta snaps, they are both busy and incredible hot most of the time. To that end, be sure to leave a day before and after to let the family recharge. Something that will ensure you and your whole family thrives while adventuring in Egypt.
